All the services you need and a great view.
You couldn’t ask for a better location. This hotel is just blocks from the Empire State Building and mere steps from Madison Square Garden. The staff at this Midtown property has a reputation for indifference toward guests, but not enough to keep visitors from coming back for more. After all, the hotel is clean and very affordable. The 182 theme rooms, updated in 2007, reflect New York’s most noted areas. They’re all fully stocked with the usual amenities, as well as Web TV with wireless Internet access, movies-on-demand and video games. You can count on air-conditioning for summer visits. Local phone calls are free. A business center is available round the clock for complimentary Internet, fax and copying services. The hotel restaurant is BCD Tofu House. The best hotel perk, however, is the rooftop Sky Bar; with its fabulous skyline views, it is as much of an attraction as the surrounding sights.
